I'm moving to the US in May after working as a nurse in the UK for nearly 6 years after training there.  I have a NY license (and the right to live and work in the US) and am looking for jobs in New York City. I've been working as a general practice nurse in the UK for the past year and a half and my experience is quite varied-neuro, women's health, and the emergency department. I haven't worked in a hospital for nearly two years.  I have no idea what sort of jobs I would be eligible for and know the job market is competitive in NYC. I was wondering if anyone has made this transition before without recent hospital experience and what roles they ended up in? If anyone could also tell me about their experience of the nursing role in the US after working in the UK I would also be very grateful! Thanks for your help in advance.
